Another good day Beautiful winter day cold but sunny we moved on to Stone had
 problems finding space why do people moor in the middle of visitor moorings so
 60' boats struggle to fit in and leave 40' spaces between them and their neighbours
Am I complaining again CHILL Its a fantastic life enjoy.

We had very good day today set off at 10.30 and made it to just before Weston Lock
moored up at 1430 after a very enjoyable night with Maffi thanks. Even Hoobie had a
friend Molly not that it stopped him snoring so rude to his guest. We put world to right
until we threw Maffi out at 1030 pm we aren't late birds, I need my beauty sleep.
A very enjoyable evening again thanks Maffi.
